 I think it's blocked on dev time.

 If you're a developer, you can try and make a patch. Here is the guide to
 working on the Tor Browser build system:

 It [https://gitweb.torproject.org/builders/tor-browser-
 bundle.yml?id=tbb-6.0a4-build1 looks like] the build system is using the
 [http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/nsis nsis package from Ubuntu
 precise], so you might have to find a way to instead use a backported more
 recent version, or build from source.
